All American

In the freezer case at your local Sam's

While stopped at a traffic light on our main street of crappity crap, I hear the tell-tale clanging of a flag breezily flapping on a flagpole.  Sure enough, I spot it over the trees.  Which business has this flag on their property?  McDonald's, of course.  Hmmmm, I wonder what other businesses fly the United States flag.   The only other one I see on this street is at the Waffle House.

Is eating crap food patriotic?!?  I'm thinking so.

My hubby and kid went to Sam's the other day to get our bi-monthly bulk items.  He told me they had seen something frightening and had a photo to show me.   Mmmmmmmmm.  Breakfast of (non)champions on a stick.  I guess this makes it far easier to eat while watching those morning programs.

No, there is no flag on the box (that I can see) but it is red, white and blue enough for me.  And the brown of artificially colored gray matter that comprises those sausages and pancakes.

Salute the box, fire up the microwave, and settle in for an hour or two of fine dining and Fox news.

I'm thinking this is not what they are eating in Paris.


  1. You're so right--only in America! It's amazing how every other country still has real food.

  2. Quite disgusting isn't it! Just looking at the packaging makes me want to throw up!
    I wonder if there is a way back to healthy eating.

  3. Funny story, when my wife and I were in Paris years ago, we went into a McDonalds because it is the only place to get a beverage with ice (Europeans do NOT get the ice thing). Anyway, the place is packed. So were every other American fast-food joint in Paris. I don't know which is sadder, that Parisians might actually be eating our horrible fast food or that American tourists might be flying all the way to Paris and seeking out McDonald's for their meals.

  4. that package should be our new flag :)
